The 2021 Conference theme is: “Moving Beyond Surviving to Thriving: Practical Interventions to Improve Your Practice”

The FASSW Executive Board along with the Host Delegation from Orange County Public School District are working hard to provide relevant, thought provoking, vital and interesting keynote speakers and workshops to help improve your practice.

These are stressful times for students, parents, teachers, staff members, schools, administrators, school district and maybe even you. As we all know education delivery and School Social Work services have significantly changed as a result of Covid-19 and new or updated skills are needed to assist our students.

This year’s conference will focus on improving our clinical skills in the areas of: Mental Health, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES), Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and Implicit Bias. The objective of our conference is to provide up to date, research-based information and practical strategies to enable us to better address the challenges our students, teachers, parents and school staff face.
